16:32 - Karlabos But it's a second degree influence u.u If Oranssi has psychedelic on it then it makes first degree stoner influence. Plus the riff is memorable, atmosphere is trippy. All the stoner scenario is set =]
16:29 - Apothecary Yeah, now that I think of it, this actually is probably one of the closest things to "stoner black metal" you could find *waits for Marcel to tell me I'm wrong* [link]
16:26 - Apothecary Stoner metal is deeply rooted in psychedelia, but also remember that psychedelic rock is deeply rooted in the blues as well, so the influence is still there
16:24 - Karlabos The last album does. Well, I don't necessarily connect bluesy with stoner, for me stoner metal is somewhat consisting of slow to mid paced memorable riffing, with psychedelic vibe and retro production
16:20 - Apothecary Not to mention, you're really taking that track out of context imo, most Oranssi Pazuzu actually doesn't sound like that
Among those who still hold faith in melodeath, Be'lakor's upcoming opus is certainly on their wishlist. The Australian band has been throwing hints our way on their Facebook page. This time around, the band seems inclined to take into account their fans' (constructive) opinions. Whether or not they actually influence the album will only be made apparent after our first glimpse of the material but Be'lakor's album number four is on its way.
A few updates from the band include the following:
"...We're also thinking about ideas for the next album's theme. There's a good chance it will be a concept album. Stay tuned, more updates to come!"
"...The first new song for the next album is also nearly complete. We're able to explore more ideas this time around..."
"...favourite Be'lakor riff, and why? ... Keen to hear your thoughts as we continue to work on album number four!"
"...favourite metal producer? Anyone you'd like to see us work with?"
Shaun and John hard at work on new material. Also present: a pot belly heater for warmth, and an Axe-Fx II for effects and pre-amping
The band's latest offering Of Breath And Bone won the best Melodeath / Extreme Power / Gothenburg Metal album on Metal Storm Awards 2012.
